GET TO KNOW FLOW
DJ CHASE FLOW represents California Fleet as he should! The beginning of his story, though, started in Philly. Let’s go back to his story at age 13.
I would always rap with my older brother Shizz Bradley and his crew Infinity in Cyphas; one of the members of the group would always call me young Flizowwwww.”Chase Flow on how he got his name
As he got older, the “Flizowwww” just seemed to stick beside his government name “Chase”. He developed an alter ego “Big Bad Wolf” from a single off of his EP Go Chase Flow. In his interview, he explains how Wolf is Flow backwards and how the 2 monikers presented the very dynamic contrasts as a Hip Hop artist and Dj. Did you know he is also a producer and composer? Most Fleet DJs are multi-talented like that. His goal these days is to entertain, uplift, and inspire his audiences across the world.
CHASE FLOW HAD TO GROW
Now, 2017 Chase found himself doing a radio interview with Dj Paulymack on 105.5 UFM and kept referring to Chase as a DJ, however, he wasn’t a DJ at the time so when they cut to commercial, he explained “Man, I’m not a Dj,” but PaulyMack explained how the people in the general public acknowledge DJs and Emcees more than record producers, so he ran with it for the interview.
They later went to the club for an artist showcase; PaulyMack shouted him out as a DJ yet again and a flood of girls tried to get into the VIP section to see him. For Chase, it was a mix between the factor of being the man at the party and having an appreciation for DJs being a record producer and the love for DJs making mash up remixes of artist acapellas over his beats.
A year later in Philly the transition between DJs was happening and his music went out while the next DJ was setting up, so everyone looked to Chase and folks started leaving. Long story short, the promoter got upset and didn’t work again. Lesson learned to never come to a gig assuming they have everything there! On the bright side, he did a party in California where no one was really interested in dancing and as he got a little worried, the blend of different genres changed the energy of the room & the party got crazy.
By the end of the set he booked multiple parties! Mr. Flows said it himself, “At the end of the day you as the DJ controls your environment.” Watching other Dj sets online, listening to them on SoundCloud and of course seeing the live show really inspired The CHASE FLOW INTERNATIONAL Brand that is displayed currently.
I listen to way too many various genres and artists. I’m feeling… All of Griselda Gang, Kanye West, Daddy Yankee, El Alfa, Ricky Kej, J-Balvin, Lyric Jones, Nas, Jay-Z, Ricky Ruckus, Anne Marie… Tierra Whack, Madeon, Calvin Harris, B.Smith, Major Lazer, NCT Dream, Tems, Polo & Pan… Ludwig Goransson, Biggie Smalls, Wu Tang Clan, Devin Morrison, Robert Glasper, The Time Clockers and of course the greatest of them all Chase Flow.Chase On his current playlist
